QUICK UPDATE

I just wanted to give you all a quick update on what is going on over here, it's been awhile since I've posted. Last night we were able to meet with the couple who is also expecting a baby boy with SB. What a blessing that was!! They are such great people, and it was so nice to talk with someone who knows EXACTLY what we are going through! What was even nicer was that I think that we would actually be friends even if we weren't in this situation together! :) They are pretty much at the same point that we are, just starting to meet all of the doctors and gather all of the information that they can. Speaking of doctors...we have a few appointments next week and could use your prayers. On Tues. we are going to the University of Michigan hospital to meet with their high risk ob, we wanted to talk with their pediatric neurosergeons but in order to do that, I first have to be seen by their ob. Then, on Wed. we will be here in Grand Rapids meeting with the pediatric neurosurgeon here, learning more about the surgery that he will need right away. So please keep us in your prayers this upcoming week. Pray that we know what questions to ask and that we don't get too overwhelmed with all of the new information. On a VERY happy note, the baby has been moving ALL around! Especially at night and in the morning he is just kicking away! What a great feeling, even through all of this he is letting us know that he is OK!

Andy and Leigh-
Add us to your list of prayerful friends---please know that we will be praying for safe travel, inspired and skilled doctors, and continued big kicks from your little man. And, most of all, for peace passing all understanding to surround and lift your faith-filled hearts.
With love from your former Bennett Street neighbors, the Lipperts
